This is delicious served with pasta, couscous or rice. To what was leftover I added more stock and pasta to make some soup. You will need a large baking tray. If you don’t have one large tray, use two and put the peppers together with the tomatoes on a separate one. It is difficult to give the right measure of stock, it will depend on the size of vegetables used and personal liking for the thickness of the vegetable mix. When serving it with pasta crumbled feta or grated parmesan goes well with it.

- 1 yellow bell pepper, deseeded and halved

- Check seasoning, stir in the parsley and serve!
As other reviewers have noted this is a wonderful vegetable dish. The vegetables were roasted earlier in the day and then simmered with the stock at meal time. The dish was served as a main course over Oven Baked White Rice, Perfect Every Time!.
This fits the bill when you want something healthy and delicious. The temp has dropped and it's been raining off and on all day so the roasting was comfortably done. The flavors are marvelous and the rice mentioned by the other reviewers was just a natural side kick and must have. I couldn't have ask for a nicer dinner this evening.
This is an excellent vegetable dish! I made it as a main meal and served it over brown rice. Delish! I cut the recipe in half and made just as directed. The half recipe of vegetables took 30 minutes to roast. Thanks for sharing, Pets! Made and enjoyed for your May 2010 LiveStrong cookathon.
